CTMH New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to my Heart New Product Blog Hop!  Over 40 Fabulous Close to my Heart Consultants are celebrating the upcoming release of the Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book by giving you a Sneak Peak of some of the great products available in the new Idea Book starting September 1st!

If you have come here from Cheryl's blog, you are on the right path!

You can find a complete list of Blog Hop participants HERE.

I'm a huge fan of embellishments of all types, but shiny sparkly bring me joy. So my project today features soon to be released Mini Medley Accents in a brand new colour - Pear, along with the new coloured Sparkles. The card base is made of Grey Wool (one of the Basic Antique colours) and I've mixed papers from two new paper packets - Magnifique and Olivia. Don't you just love the way everything from Close to My Heart works perfectly together? The stamped sentiment is from a brand new set - Tag the Occasion.

Now "Hop" on over to Rochelle's Blog: to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and see the great new Paper Packs,  My Acrylix Stamp Sets, and my personal favourite - Embellishments!
Remember, all the goodies shown today will be available when the Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book goes LIVE on September 1st!

So I Took a Quiz...

...and came up with this:

You Are a Lemon Cupcake

You are spirited and spunky. You embrace life and have a sunny outlook.
You're drawn to all sorts of people. You can find something to like about almost anyone.

You are like a cupcake because you're cute and happy. You can turn anyone's day around.
You love to laugh and have a wickedly funny sense of humor. You enjoy teasing and joking around.

Seems to me the joke's on them. True, I do love a lemony flavour, am drawn to all sorts of people, and I can find something to like about anyone (if I'm in the mood). But cute and happy? Sounds more like a puppy than me. Then again I do like to joke and tease. Problem is, no one gets that it's a joke or just teasing, so then I have to explain myself, which is no fun. Thank God I've got my wicked sense of humour to see me through... LOL!
